PPP Kalvebod Brygge, Kopenhagen, Denmark, 2018

nexusGrue + Hornstrup, LOYTEC Competence Partner since 2010, was founded in 1981 and is an “AAA” rated Denmark based engineering and consultancy company. The company concentrates on providing innovative solutions to private, public, and financial sectors worldwide for automation, communication networks, building engineering, and energy & environment.

Kalvebod Brygge is placed as a visual landmark at the gateway to central Copenhagen both for drivers along Kalveboderne Quay and for train passengers going to and from Copenhagen.

Built on an area of 60,000 m² at Kalvebod Brygge, Carsten Niebuhrsgade it will soon be the new administrative center of Banedanmark (Danish railway infrastructure company and administrator of the Danish rail network), The Danish Transport Authority, The Danish Road Directorate, and The Danish Energy Agency.

Room Automation

An important consideration for this project is that no physical I/Os are used in room automation. As sensors and actors are integrated via Modbus, KNX and DALI only, cabling costs are reduced dramatically. In addition, this ensures highest flexibility for future changes with a minimum of cable work.

All LROC-401 room controllers on each floor in the respective tower are installed in a common switchboard. There are no distribution boxes spread over the ceiling with the consequence that costs for power supply, backbone network, and installation are very low. This also affects and allows easy commissioning and servicing.

HVAC Control

HVAC Control is realized via L-INX Automation Server. All frequency inverters are connected via Modbus RTU. M-Bus meters are connected for centralized energy management.

Building management

The LWEB-900 Building Management software takes care of:

  • Energy Management
  • Room / HVAC Automation
  • Operating and Monitoring
  • Data Storage and Reporting
  • Device Management
  • System/Network Management
  • Backup/Restore


During all project phases a close cooperation with LOYTEC helps to reduce risks. Therefore, Grue + Hornstrup can ensure a smooth project implementation. Because there is no need for physical I/Os for room automation, the use of bus technologies results in high efficiency and enables cost reduction. Furthermore, with the L-STUDIO software efficient engineering is made possible. The integrated building management system LWEB-900 is used for operating and managing the complete building, as well as the BA network / LOYTEC devices.
